    Being new to kegging also, a couple of things which helped me work through some of my leak
    issues are:1) Don't assume you have only one leak. I had three micro-leaks that I couldn't find
    using the bub...

    Last January I got a kegerator, and after a year of experience, some good, some bad, I wanted
    to post some lessons learned for the potential keggers out there. For background, I've got a 2
    tap (dual P...

    While this isn't the perfect solution, you can at least have a quick sanity check by putting
    both thermometers into boiling water. Water boils at 212 deg (unless you are at really high

    Was your cider from fresh juice or bottled (filtered, pasteurized) juice? The former might have
    issues with pectin haze. Then I don't think finings help - pectic enzyme might be in order. If

    I agree with Yooper here, without knowing his setup, it's tough to guess what he needs. If
    someone gave me a glass carboy, it would sit and collect dust (I use better bottles... lighter
    & safer). I re...

    I did a tripel with whiskey-soaked oak chips earlier this year and it turned out great. Whiskey
    was from a local distiller, so unless you are in the Virginia area I can't recommend based on
    my own exp...

    Hey brewers, get out those brew logs! If you've brewed using oak chips before (no barrel aging,

  • Posted in thread: Extract Recipe Scaling... Is it linear? on 10-30-2015 at 01:19 PM
    In general, yes. Malt (grain or extract) scales linearly. Hops will, but keep in mind that hop
    utilization is a function of both boil volume and final volume. Most adjuncts will scale
    linearly, but th...
